Kelvin Kuo/USA TODAY Sports Grace Keene So Cal Choppers

We're in Hot 100 rankings mode again after launching the Hot 100 2020 class last August and then updating the 2017, '18 and '19 classes over the last six months.

Starting May 1, FloSoftball will break new ground as we unveil the Class of 2021 which already has a dozen elite players committed to major programs like Oklahoma, Auburn, UCLA, Oregon and more.

FloSoftball has done eight grad years of Hot 100 player lists --from the Class of 2014 through the upcoming 2021 class and we've updated each of the 2015-19 classes at least once!

We'll also announce who will be the top-ranked player and those atop their classes have done pretty well so far--previous No. 1 Hot 100-ranked players included:

  • USA Softball National Team member and Oregon infielder Jenna Lilley (2014)
  • NCAA Freshman of the Year and Florida outfielder Amanda Lorenz (2015)
  • Oregon starting pitcher Miranda Elish (2016)
  • USA Softball Junior National Team member Bri Perez (2017, UCLA signee)
